Laser Hair Removal Blog
Laser hair reduction is a medical procedure that uses an intense pulse beam light to remove unwanted body hair.
Laser hair removal works by passing a light beam through the skin. The laser targets dark pigment, called melanin, in hair.
When the light beam hits the hair follicle (where hair growth originates), the intense heat destroys the hair follicle.
Laser hair reduction requires multiple treatments, because hair can only be effectively treated when it is in a stage of growth termed the antigen phase.
Since hair grows in cycles and does not enter the antigen phase at once, sessions for laser hair removal are spread out to treat new hair growth that was ‘dormant’ in previous sessions.
The number of sessions required varies between people.
